She's back.

After Melissa McCarthy's internet-winning debut as White House Sean Spicer on Saturday Night Live last week, she has returned with a gum-chewing vengeance.

"I’m not going to do that because that was the old Spicey. This is the new Spicey," she began the eight minute sketch.

After last week's performance, Spicer told McCarthy to "slow down on the gum chewing; way too many pieces in there", to which she responded in a way only she could - by vouching to limit it to "one slice a day", which is the size of a computer monitor.

This time, McCarthy/Spicer touches on the list of terrorist acts "you're not  reporting on", like the "the Bowling Green Massacre (Not the Kellyanne one, the real one), Horror at Six Flags, the Slaughter at Fraggle Rock and The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down."

When asked about his thoughts on McCarthy's take on him, Spicer said he thought the show was "funny", but she could "dial it back a bit"; however, it was later reported he and President Trump were upset that he was being portrayed by a woman, so McCarthy hit back hard - wearing one of Ivanka Trump's bangles and high heels.

And we also met Kate McKinnon as US Attorney General  Jeff Sessions for the first time.

Watch the whole clip here, it's worth it:
